I've signed up for the forum attached to John Scalzi's Whatever blog and it has a discussion of the (un)Intelligent Design movie Expelled.

The New York Times review is one of the funniest things I've read in a long while if only for the rating notice at the end:

"Expelled” is rated PG (Parental guidance suggested). It has smoking guns and drunken logic."

If this thing should ever get released here, I'm tempted to review it as a comedy. Of errors if nothing else. :)

Scientific American's reviews, while not quite as pungent, are still good reading. Links are here.

The ruminations about why the makers offered Scientific American a private screening are priceless. My favourite bit here was: "And they can't have been looking for a critique of the science in the movie, because there isn't much to speak of."

Even the bit I could read without subscribing looked good.
